Even if you’re not a celebrity, you know that Hollywood can be a very fickle place to work. One day, a celebrity can be on the cover of virtually every magazine and tour the country for interviews, and the next day, that same celebrity can become a forgotten memory in the minds of the public, and have a hard time getting jobs.
Some celebrities who were once on the Hollywood A List end up living the glamorous life for a while when they’re unable to get gigs.
